1997 mercury sable no odt on obd but engine light is still On!! What should i do??


There are no computers used to work on any vehicle

There are no codes that tell you what is wrong or to
replace anything

You use the codes along with factory manuals to learn the
system your working on & follow trouble charts until you have
something to component test

You didn't do any of that,you don't know the system,the testing required
to find a problem

Need a repair shop

Broken coolant line.


I'm not sure if you can buy just that piece, it's recomended that you replace the entire heater hose assembly.
For reference the NAPA p/n is BK 8155114 go to thier web site and verify this is the part you're needing to replace.
You should flush and replace the coolant if it old.
Hope this help you with your problem.

No oil pressure, camshaft position sensor error,


Yes, the sensor is in small housing the goes in the hole where the distributor used to go. That also drives the oil pump so don't drive it you'll ruin the engine. It's located down under the throttle body, near transmission end of the engine.

Look at the back of engine near tranny and you will see what looks like half a distributor without a distributor cap. The camshaft position sensor is mounted on top.
